Free agent CB Davon House will visit the Steelers Monday.

The Packers have reportedly reached out to House, who played the first four years of his career in Green Bay, but he will get his free agency started in Pittsburgh. Both teams could use help at corner.

The Packers have reached out to free agent CB Davon House.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports there is "mutual interest." House profiles as a Packers pickup. Green Bay did not want to lose him in 2015 free agency -- but was outbid by Jacksonville -- and because House was released by the Jags, he would not count against the Packers' future compensatory picks. House should be an affordable signing after losing his starting job last season.
Mar 7 - 2:22 PM

Jaguars released CB Davon House.

The expected move leaves just four under-contract cornerbacks on the Jags' offseason roster: Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Colvin, Doran Grant, and Josh Johnson. Inked to a four-year, $24.5 million deal in 2015, House got torched for most of his first year in Jacksonville before lasting four games as a 2016 starter, then getting benched for Prince Amukamara. Amukamara is now a free agent, and the Jags want him back. It would not be surprising if House resurfaced in Green Bay, where his career began and the Packers need cornerback help. They did not want to lose House two years ago, simply getting outbid by the cap-rich Jags.
Mar 4 - 1:41 AM's Ian Rapoport reports the Jaguars are shopping CB Davon House, and are expected to release him if they cannot find a trade partner.

In other words, the Jags will be releasing House. Signed to a "four-year, $24.5 million" contract in 2015, House was benched after four games last season. Cutting House will create $6 million in cap space and leave behind no dead money. The ex-Packer turns 28 in July.

Jaguars CB Davon House doesn't believe his 2016 benching was performance-related.

House played 54 snaps after Week 4. He struggled mightily before his benching. "The situation this year, if you ask me, was not football-related," House claimed. "There is no reason why I shouldn’t have been on the field. But with a new coach coming in, he’s going to see what I can do, he’s going to see what I did last year and they’re going to like what they see." Going on 28, House's $6 million 2017 salary can come off the books with no dead money. It seems like a no-brainer adjustment for the Jags to make.
Jan 2 - 3:05 PM

Jaguars added CB Davon House to the injury report as questionable with an illness.

House missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury, but he was a full participant Friday. Things are not getting any better a secondary which is likely to be without Prince Amukamara (hamstring, questionable) and could be without FS Tashaun Gipson, who was listed as questionable after picking up a hamstring injury Friday. Joe Flacco is set up for a big game.

Jaguars CB Davon House (hamstring) didn't practice on Thursday.

It's never a great sign when a player gets added to the injury report midway through the week. With Prince Amukamara (hamstring) also injured, the Jags' secondary could be shorthanded against the Ravens in Week 3.

Davon House is third in the league with 18 passes defended this season.

House is on pace to break Rashean Mathis' team record of 21. Ridiculously benched for getting torched by DeAndre Hopkins, who may be the best receiver in the league, House has excelled while playing almost every snap the last five games.

Jaguars CB Davon House has been demoted to nickel back.

House drew the unenviable task of shadowing DeAndre Hopkins last week, a matchup in which he predictably struggled. It was questionable for the Jaguars to put House in that position in the first place, but it is ridiculous to bench him for struggling against one of the best receivers in the league. Coach Gus Bradley appears to be grasping at straws.

Jaguars LCB Davon House (foot) was spotted in a walking boot Monday.

House was shaken up trying to bring down Rob Gronkowski on Sunday. For now, he should be considered day to day. House is off to a mediocre start after signing a four-year, $24.5 million deal in March.
Mon, Sep 28, 2015 03:18:00 PM

Jaguars agreed to terms with CB Davon House on a multi-year contract.

He'll get $6.25 million per year. House is not yet 26 years old and flashed impressive press-man coverage ability as a reserve in Green Bay the past two seasons. At 6-foot 1/2 and 200 pounds, House is the type of lengthy corner who's flourished in Seattle and will fit ex-Seahawks DC Gus Bradley's Jaguars scheme. We're a bit surprised the Packers let House get away, but they weren't going to pay him as much as the Jags did. Look for House to start opposite Demetrius McCray in Jacksonville, with Aaron Colvin also pressing for snaps.

The Vikings have interest in free agent CB Davon House.

After a largely-dismal season out of LCB Josh Robinson, the Vikings are looking to upgrade opposite RCB Xavier Rhodes. This is the first report of a specific team having interest in 25-year-old House beyond the Packers.

The player rep for free agent CB Davon House says his client will test the open market.

Agent Kenny Zuckerman anticipates "a lot of interest" in House, whom the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel recently suggested could command $7 million per year. House has limited experience, but is a big, physical press corner who doesn't turn 26 until July. The Packers want him back, but only at their price.
Fri, Mar 6, 2015 04:10:00 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes free agent CB Davon House could command $7 million annually on the open market.

"Because of a dearth of top-end corners and the desperate need for good cover men around the league, the chase for solid corners might get heated," said Packers beat writer Tom Silverstein. "House could wind up receiving $7 million on the open market." The Packers want House back, but would prefer a contract closer to $5 million a season. House is Rotoworld's No. 7 available corner.
